Adele Venter

“In making the works of art, I create patterns which are printed, and then I incorporate three-dimensional elements into these settings. These images are then photographed using specific light sources in order to accentuate the layering of dimensions.”

"I studied Fine Art at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa and specialized in Sculpture. Creating three-dimensional work was the start of my artistic career, and I admired the works of the ancients in fresco and high relief. When I immigrated to Canada, I was introduced to photography as a fine art medium. I became intrigued by flat art which uses stylistic elements that give the illusion of three dimensions. Fundamentally, my art has been evolving as a meeting ground between three-dimensionality and the more minimalistic flat art style, achieved through layering images by flattening and extruding dimensions. Narratives unfold within this new landscape with the thematic focus being on the interplay between people and the social and private environments in which they interact."
